(State) Habeas Corpus – Procedural Requirements – Adequate Alternative Remedy

State ex rel. Gerard Noel Haas v. McReynolds, 2002 WI 43, affirming unpublished court of appeals decision
For Haas: Robert G. Bernhoft

Issue/Holding: By voluntarily dismissing an appeal from denial of a first habeas petition, Haas was estopped from filing a second habeas petition in the court of appeals raising the same issue contained in the first petition. (That is, because Haas had an alternate, adequate remedy to challenging denial of the first petition — appeal of that denial — he’s not entitled to a separate writ.) ¶¶ 14-20.
